I'm not sure what to make of this shot. It is an amazing shot and I understand the title and what you were wanting to say in the photo, but something is just not right. This is just my opinion and is more of a critique of the art itself, not your skills of photography and your post process (which are amazing).

Thanks. Maybe too much space on right side.

I really like it, my designer head, wants to space the trees out equally and move that middle tree a smiggin to the left. Love the title and thought process, and the natural gradient of light in the sky.

After reading Richard's post and studying the image again, I think he nailed it on the head. The spacing on the trees is what maybe throwing this image off in my eyes, not the open space to the right. I feel it is throwing the symmetry off (at no fault of your own).

I like the shot as well. For me, lol....given the framing, it's the right edge as you hinted in post 3.
My eye would have loved to see some plain blue sky on the right edge instead of chopping through the clouds. Visually, it would have made the image more "harmonious".
But sometimes...often actually, you can't always git whatchoo waaaant.

Given the title though I totally see what you were going for. Imo, the panorama in this case is detracting from the theme of "evolution"....If you cropped out the right 1/3rd (or so) altogether, for me the image is stronger. The way it is now the shot is too much about the clouds...when really, the shot is mostly about the trees with the clouds as accents.
Feel free to tell me I'm way off if you think that i am.
Hope that may help - Marko

Great critique, Marko!!! I know it is hard to critique the artwork itself. Vyeko is a great photographer and post editor, so really, all that is left is to critique the theme/art itself (which is in the eye of the beholder). Your critique is dead on (IMO). It is exactly how I feel about the shot, but I could not put my finger on it.

I'm just admiring a very cool pano shot. Nicely done, vyeko. I love it just the way it is.

Thank you all.I really appreciate for all yours opinion.I just love it to discus and see it how other see my image.I am open for any suggestion.How you all see image is a little controversial in composition.This point of view is only I can get.Left and right of me are private properties and how Marko say (you can't always git whatchoo waaaant). I have thinking a lot on composition here and about crop out 1/3 from right but then I realize how much I will loose in mood.Image without sun light from right just not working for me and maybe empty space show that evolution will continue.

I know it would completely kill the title of the image, but what if you crop it just to the left of the big tree. I like it (I placed my hand over the left side of the image)

I love it pretty much the way it is. If anything, the first thought that came to mind when I first look at it was to see just a 'tad' more at the bottom.

Love the theme here Vyeko, but as Marko said could use some cropping of right side and still strongly convey this title. When I first look at the image, I see the large tree, then my eye goes directly to right of it to sky and clouds which overpower the smaller "evolving" tress on left of photo.

I think the shot excellent as is. We can see the evolution as the trees get bigger and the negative space allows for so much more evolution as well. In my opinion, don't change a thing!
